The fact that most of them were recent graduates from U of I, really put it into perspective and gave me hope that I can actually make it in the real world. I am now much more confident about my career objectives and feel like I now have the knowledge to reach these objectives from what I have learned in ACE 341. The class also gave us a peek into several well known companies in the financial planning field and I learned that different companies operate very differently and with different ideals. Before taking the class, I had no clue there was more than one way that these companies charged their clients. Now, I know the difference between commissions, fee based and fee only financial planning.
Basically, I acquired useful skills for any job: to follow directions, to give the boss what he or she was asking of me, and to network and gain insight from other colleagues. It was still disturbing to me that after four years of schooling, I felt I had not received the education I initially expected. Overall, college does not bring out the full academic potential of the students who invest the time and money into an education. Teachers need to set aside their biases and restructure and develop curriculum, as well as student-teacher relationships, in order to truly develop college students into freethinking, exploratory people. Structured, pertinent curriculum is the foundation of a good class.

I have always tried to maintain this personal objective over the years and after my graduation, I will locate a better job to support my family which will enable me to provide a better life than what we have now.
I have learned many things from participating in my internship. Before my junior year at college, I was shy and had insecurities about my abilities to work in the accounting industry. My internship experience can be divided into three sections. First, is the practice and experience that I have obtained which helped me towards my careers goals. Secondly, is the exposure to the basic structural organization of companies.
As a penultimate step, I am eager to earn a Master’s in Public Administration with a specialization in Government Administration. This decision came after careful consideration of my academic background, areas of interest, and ultimate career goals. My academic background consists of two phases. My first college attempt, 1997-2002, was unsuccessful due largely to distraction caused by my father’s illness. The second phase started in 2009 with a new major, Consumer Economics, which better suited my interests.
I would like to share how each module of the course helped me to hone my interpersonal skills: Attendance: One of very first things Diana mentioned is to feel business communication class as a job. I felt sorry that I was unable to attend some of the classes of the course and I really regret my decision.

This preparedness has spread too many aspects of my life. It has caused me to think ahead of situations and predict what I may need before entering a scenario. Since beginning college, I have become a much more proactive and prepared individual. As you can see, I entered college an unprepared, semi goal driven individual with not so great time management skills. My college experience provoked a metamorphosis over the course of the last two years that has made a sizable difference in the way I handle tasks.
Since the start of my first college semester my number one dream is to graduate college. Procrastination is difficult to overcome but I can do it. So my dilemma is pretty clear and conquering this bad habit and making a positive change is my next step. I chose the topic of procrastination for my behavior change project because I need to overcome this bad habit in order to graduate college and succeed in my life. If I want to correct my procrastination, I need to make a big change by filling my days with study time and accomplished assignments.
When I first started participating I not only got myself involved but also my family. I think that in the classroom I learned alot, but going through it is different and I got opinions from differnt people besides the opinions the book or my professor has. After such experience I am more inclined to be involved in politics now and I believe I still will in the future. The reason why I think so is because it helped me understand more about everything in general. For example the way my work permit works and the reason I got the opportunity to have such an important document.
The various financial statements produced by accountants then furnish business and other types of organizations with the basis for their financial planning and control, and provide other interested parties (investors, the government) with information they can use to make decisions about these organizations. FUNCTIONS OF ACCOUNTING Accounting provides informational access to a firm's financial condition for three broad interest groups. First, it gives the firm's management the information to evaluate financial performance over a previous period of time, and to make decisions regarding the future. Second, it informs the general public, and particularly the firm's stockholders or those interested in buying stock, about the financial status of the firm over the previous quarter or year. Third, accounting provides reports for the tax and regulatory departments of the various levels of government.
